    it will look a little different.

    Not sure of the scale/gauge combo, but get yourself a copy of the Ntrak handbook. Lots of plans for modules, including corners. Even if you model another scale, there are good ideas for modules, and ideas for making all of them interconnect.

    Some basic info can be found on the Ntrak website.
